That's either a joke of some kind, or one of the most bizarre things I've ever read on the internets.
 
2005-05-07 02:32:38 AM  
okay, I feel guilty, but I laughed out loud when I first read it.
 
2005-05-07 02:33:46 AM  
yeah, it's obviously a joke, it's hosted on a college website, not the BBC's
 
2005-05-07 02:34:24 AM  
OK I see the spoof now.. well done.
 
2005-05-07 02:37:54 AM  
Oh, if only it were true...
 
2005-05-07 02:41:20 AM  
Who cares? It's my last day of classes evar (unless i go to grad school) and i'm farkin crunk!/.
 
2005-05-07 02:44:22 AM

2005-05-07 02:44:57 AM

-u
 
2005-05-07 02:46:28 AM  
spelunker_defender - Don't worry, i tied on one (one on?) enough for several epeople.
 
2005-05-07 02:47:44 AM  
LOL

Ha! It reminds me of this:

2 Kings
2:23 And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.

2:24 And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.

Thanks, Jebus.

So, am I going to hell for laughing at that headline?
 
2005-05-07 07:46:19 AM  
Man, talk about a freak show!

Well, I have my doubts about this story. Look at the URL, it's not a BBC news site, it's Virginia.edu
 
2005-05-07 10:32:53 AM  
Okay, I didn't see the spoof at first, and just kept thinking, "only men are lame enough to try to go against a lion".

/still thinks that anyways even knowing it's not real
 
2005-05-07 11:56:16 AM  
lol. well done brad

though i don't feel 'psych'ed by your website, merely disappointed. i had higher expectations considerg your efforts on this

either way - nice spoof
 
2005-05-07 11:58:04 AM  
and of course, if i could spell considering, that post would have been a little better

can someone loan me an 'in'?
 
2005-05-07 12:34:45 PM  
amazing spoof... too bad its not true =)
 
2005-05-07 12:35:46 PM  
I bet that left a little mess.
 
2005-05-07 12:36:25 PM  
Probably the best spoof I've ever seen on Fark. Nicely done.
 
2005-05-07 12:37:25 PM  
A lion mutilating 42 midgets is anything but Obvious.
 
2005-05-07 12:37:50 PM  
Damn, and I was packing my bags for Cambodia.
 
2005-05-07 12:39:44 PM  
It's a weeping sorrow that this is only a spoof.A government that would let this be staged for half the gate and a 'no cameras' provision is just what this world needs.
 
2005-05-07 12:42:45 PM  
just check the 'cambodian genocide' link... goes to YALE
 
2005-05-07 12:43:41 PM  
Great spoof, reminds me of the "Fellatio found to Prevent Breast Cancer" article. If you didn't look at the address, it looked genuine
 
2005-05-07 12:43:55 PM  
It would have been awesome though. I don't like it when people mess with animals. It's enough that we have one dumb war after another that we have to inflict ourselves on animals who can do without the attention.

These guys faking websites is going to lead us into the dark ages of the intarweb, mark my words.
 
2005-05-07 12:44:53 PM  
Damn this would have taken midgets to a whole new level
 
2005-05-07 12:45:21 PM  
bluecoast just check the 'cambodian genocide' link... goes to YALE

true. but it accurately goes to a yale website about cambodian genocide
 
2005-05-07 12:46:09 PM  
I need to talk to Kim Il Sung


Bet He lets us do it for real.... We can use his people.
Put it on an island let internationals come in to watch.... As long as he gets half the proceeds he'd be cool he'd even let us make it a pay per view.....

Lion Mutilates 42 Midgets in Cambodian Ring-Fight

...I'm sorry, but that is really really really funny. I "LOL'ed" on that one....

/maybe rofl?
 
2005-05-07 12:49:11 PM  
Were zombies involved?
 
2005-05-07 12:49:15 PM  
Joke or no joke, I laughed pretty hard.

I think it would take more than 12 minutes for a lion to kill/mame that many little people. That's perhaps the only flaw I found right away.

Either way, I thought it was funny and I'm probably going to Hell because my sense of humor is sick. Yup.
 
2005-05-07 12:49:34 PM  
I love it! If onlyt we could have put some of our pseudoliberal American politicians in that ring.....
 
2005-05-07 12:49:52 PM  
we should see if we can get this on the 'mainstream media" they will call for an investigation of Cambobian rign fighting and we will all laugh
 
2005-05-07 12:50:19 PM  
Useless without pics?

/hanging head in shame
 
2005-05-07 12:51:31 PM  
Kittiesomething

No, it's real. BBC News now hosts their website from a virginia.edu student's personal space. It's all the rage.
 
2005-05-07 12:55:42 PM  
"A lion mutilating 42 midgets is anything but Obvious."
I dunno, obviously they got mutilated.
 
2005-05-07 12:56:04 PM  
What about Mini-Ditka vs. a lion?
 
2005-05-07 01:01:37 PM  
How many twelve-year-olds do you think a lion could take on?
 
2005-05-07 01:02:02 PM  
Fake or not....That was the best thing I've read all year.
 
2005-05-07 01:02:59 PM  
I saw a very very old documentary movie of about 7 Africans killing a lion. They were armed only with pointy sticks. They weren't spears with metal/stone heads, just pointy sticks. It was very impressive.

7 people? Impressive?

I don't think so. One person one spear, that would be impressive. Anything more than that is over-kill.
 
2005-05-07 01:15:00 PM  
Never come to a lion fight armed only with 42 midgets.
 
2005-05-07 01:17:04 PM  
I killed a lion with my doritos breath once.
 
2005-05-07 01:18:56 PM  
This was on pay-per-view right after celebrity baby toss II.
 
2005-05-07 01:20:22 PM  
this one time, a ninja was eating in a diner. Someone dropped a spoon, and the ninja killed the entire town.
 
2005-05-07 01:20:42 PM  
It got me. Wonderful writing.
 
2005-05-07 01:23:40 PM  
I want a Cambodian Midget Fighting Leauge T-shirt, anyone elese?
 
2005-05-07 01:27:43 PM
